Murano

9:18 AM


After Venice, we took a boat ride over to the island of Murano. Carmen told us that we would love this place not only because it's known for it's glass art but because there was no tourists! She was totally right. The place was kind of deserted except for a few locals here and there. 

As soon as we got off the boat we began to look around for a place to drink coffee. It had begun to rain and we were exhausted from the night before. We ended up going to a random little cafe and had the best capuccino's ever. We ended up drinking two each, along with some baked sweets. It was pure perfection. I rarely drink coffee, but on this trip I was downing it like water. 

After our caffeine break we were magically re-energized. We walked over the bridge and ran into this small old man playing an accordion. He was so friendly! The music he played fit so well to the beautiful surroundings...the canals, the tower and the buildings.  In that precise moment, I felt so happy to be there, that I grabbed the girls and began to dance. We twirled around gracefully along to his tango-like tune. Some onlookers came by to see what the commotion was all about. I usually would be embarrassed to be dancing like that in public but whatever.... we were in ITALY!
